Patna: Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar announced 20 lakh jobs to the youths of the state during his Independence Day speech here.
After hoisting the national flag at the historic Gandhi Maidan here, Kumar addressed the gathering and said that he was ‘wishing not only to give 10 lakh jobs but he wants to double the number’.
“Our ambition is to provide jobs to 20 lakh in government and private sectors in the state. Now, people of the new generation (Tejashwi Yadav) have come with us, hence, we will jointly execute our work to provide jobs to the people of Bihar. Our eventual goal is to bring Bihar to the developed state category,” Kumar said.
After being thrown out from the Bihar government, the BJP leaders have been raising ‘the 10 lakh job promise’ of Tejashwi Yadav and targeting the Nitish Kumar government.
“We have committed to do the justified development in the state along with maintaining brotherhood in the society. There are many challenges before us but as we have glorious history and have a complete legacy, we will achieve our historic period again,” Kumar said.
